Five Things to Do in NYC for Halloween Weekend


Michelle Ricciardi, Editor in Chief

With Halloween right around the corner, many of you might be wondering how to celebrate this weekend besides the usual trip to Pauly’s or White Plains (I’m judging you-you’re better than that).

There is so much more to being a student at Pace than just the surrounding Westchester area. New Yorkers have a habit of celebrating just about every single holiday/event to the extreme and you should take advantage of this and join in the fun. So start exploring New York and get festive this Halloween with these 5 events $25 and under (‘cause we’re all broke).

  1. Webster Hell all four floors of one of NYC’s most famous nightclubs will transform into one huge Halloween party all weekend long. The best part is that it’s a 19+ older event, so you’ll be able to attend without any tricks of your own.

  1. The Village Halloween Parade this will be the 43rd Annual Halloween parade hosted in NYC. With more than 50,000 ghouls and ghosts flooding the streets to parade through Greenwich Village including bands, dancers, and artists, there’s truly nothing like a parade in NYC. All ages welcome.

  1. Gansevoort Park Rooftop Penthouse of Peril known as one of the best rooftop lounges in the city, the Gansevoort is hosting its Penthouse of Peril bash, including a one-hour vodka open bar from 9pm-10pm. This might be your only chance to party like a rockstar in this hotel without actually having to be a rockstar, so take advantage of this Saturday night Halloween party. 21+event.

  1. Nightmare at Bar 13 at just $15, Bar 13 is definitely your cheapest NYC destination if you’re looking to party this weekend. Enjoy skyline views, from the rooftop, a live DJ, and an open bar. 21+event.

  1. 1OAK Halloween 1OAK’s normal crowd consists of A-list celebrities, but next Monday you don’t have to be anybody to get festive in this upscale lounge. 21+event.
